a long time, when the c.i.a. for 25 years, now he's been with the obama administration as a national security advisor for four years. and while he was not the architect of the drone program itself, he has been the architect of the obama administration drone program. and i came away from there with the feeling that i had going in that there is a definite direction of not capturing these high value targets and soliciting information from them through detention and interrogation. >> but because he said that it's ideal or preferrable to capture them so you can get intelligence. >> yet when i asked him how many high value targets they had captured in the last four years on the obama administration, he dodged and weaved there. >> he said he would get back to you with a number. >> the fact is, i know what the number is. it's one. he allude to do it a little later in his testimony. we captured a guy, we put him on a ship for 60 days and sailed around in the ocean, interrogated him. you know, that's not a detention interrogation policy that can be -- >> brennan also, as mike emmanuel pointed
was leaked today that explains the obama administration justification for taking out american citizens could pose a terror threat. is that constitutional? details up next. >>> greg has a horse he's going to tell us about later. first we have to ask, is it ever okay for the u.s. government to kill its own citizens? what if they were al-qaeda terrorists. there a justice department memo that reveals the obama administration legal justification for targeting american suspects overseas with drone strikes. eric holder defended this controversy today. >> we have, as a basis for action we take, congressional statute that allows us to operate against al-qaeda and associated entities not only in pakistan or afghanistan but that we only take thesed. kinds of actions when there's an imminent threat, when capture is not feasible and we're confident we're doing so in a way consistent with federal and international law. >> drone attacks not new. we've known the obama administration uses them but the legal justification was revealed and be a big topic at brennan's hearing thursday before the senate about th

threat. the obama administration has focused almost entirely on al qaeda. believing people when they came in and said, look, the only people who can actually give you advice on dealing with these radical folks are islamic believers, he so you must get advice from us. form partnerships with us, let us give you advice, let us tell you how to deal with this threat. and they made great inroads in this administration in that approach. but the blindness of the larger jihadist threat, the enterprise that is being pursued by the muslim brotherhood abroad, has resulted in the practice of drone delivered assassinations of al qaeda figures with what many are questioning or arguing is due process without that. and this administration's repeated declaration that al qaeda is being defeated. they know not of what they speak. the idea that al qaeda is being defeated is helping recruit others who are radical jihadists, because they are able to point to a united states administration that is so blind and so uninformed of what really is going on that they think al qaeda's on the decline when radical jihad i
with energy. much of this comes from the obama administration with its green energy policies. don't you think it will just find another way to help these companies out? >> there are lots of ways that a determined federal government and the president to is intent on providing very expensive energy that people can't afford and don't want to my good start would be getting rid of these tax credits. we have all of the things, loan guarantees that became solyndra, all of the other ways that the federal government can put it thumb in favor a particular friend of theirs or an energy source that they happen to value. but this would be a good first part. it's good tax policy. gerri: i'm all in favor of renewable energy. i'm in favor of wind, whenever you want to build, mr. private businessmen. i just want to pay for it. is that how you feel? >> i completely agree. i am very hopeful that one of these great energy sources will find an affordable solution for america. but it is just like anything else. the greek independence and the money from taxpayers, eventually they have to get off and get the depende
, the obama administration has been getting called out for picking winners and losers in the energy sector, mostly losers. a nebill would eliminate all of the energy, all of the energy tax credits. would that make it even playing field for people in that this is? running me now, republican congressman of kansas superposed the bill. congressman, welcome to the show. are you trying to accomplish with this? >> several things, first of all. thank you for having me on the show and talk about this. this is about affordable energy for the folks in kansas and california. affordable energy that they can depend on and rely on. our tax cut has become one that favors folks with a political ties and not those customers. in so many energy companies to get back to doing what they're supposed to do, creating value through finding customers, not political patrons. my legislation does just that, getting rid of every single energy tax credit in the entire code. i am all for it. we should close these loopholes for wind and the algae and tax credits totalling guesstimed of the mall and level the playing field.
the obama administration, an international field some change is coming to haiti. . jobs have been created, schools have been built, yet, gender-based violence remains severe. today i'm introducing a resolution calling attention to the plight of haitian women and children and calling for action on their behalf. with the strategy to prevent gender-based violence, the obama administration is on the right track. congress and the administration must ensure robust funding for these initiatives, including the u.s. agency of international development, gender equality and female empowerment policy to meet the continuing need. for me, this issue is personal. i've seen the tent cities firsthand. i have spoken with the women. i have counseled the victims and witnessed the scars of indignation and pain. i feel the anguish in my bones. but i also feel the hope. let's work together to ensure that no woman in haiti, no woman in this hemisphere or in this world has to bear the indignity of sexual violence. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoma
think it is a great idea and that's what the obama administration is tapping into that while the nra and nra members have always been a very vocal, you could say minority they're hoping to tap into the silent majority of people who want more common sense when it comes to gun control, gun laws. >> before i let you get out of here. i do want to ask you about jesse jackson, jr., over the misuse of campaign funds. what's next for jesse jackson, jr.? >> well, the next step would be to have the announcement from the justice department with some more specifics. my colleagues at "the sun-times" have reported that the deal may not include a deal over what kind of prison time to serve and he thought he might have done better with the judge. the next step was to find out the details and exactly what he pled to. we also need to know if his wife now former alderman sandy jackson will get caught up with some kind of charges pressed against her because she served as his campaign manager and drew a salary from his campaign fund and is suspending from that fund that is at issue here. >> lynn sweet, c
that that is the threat, but nothing from the -- but nothing from the administration indicates that. >> obama care was not a tax until they needed to be a tax. >> that was the supreme court. host: weighing in on the conversation, the financial crisis, did it delay your retirement? on twitter you can participate as well. host: let's hear from sandra in virginia. hello. caller: i am the wife of a retired pastor. he is not retired, we cannot retire. because when the crash happened, we received notice from our retirement fund that in order for them to serve everyone, they were going to cut everyone, so we got a cut from 2100 per month to 1600 per month. my husband has to continue working, even though he is well past the age for retirement. they are talking about moving it up. while pasturing is not a hard job, physically, it is still a matter of going to work everyday and it is definitely an emotionally draining jobs. even though he is called a part- time minister, there is no such thing as a part-time anything in pastoral ministry. when people call on you, you come, and that is just the way that it i
the capacity to deliver a blow to them. gregg: president obama has repeatedly said and his administration has said the military option is on the table. is that rhetoric in your judgment? is it sincere? does it need you to believe that in the end israel will be forced to act unilaterally? >> what's most important is what do the iranians believe? they don't believe that rhetoric. they have watched us wire brush the israelis in public for inching closer to a military option. the iranians interpret that that we don't have the stomach ourselves for the military option. they don't take it seriously. netanyahu said to us months ago that this summer is when he believes the iranians will cross the red line. and he will be forced to conduct some unilateral military action. it appears that will become a reality. gregg: iran's foreign minister claims his country is set to do a deal with the west to diffuse the situation. is that just a ploy, they are borrowing a page out of the iranian nuclear play book? it's a shell game and they are playing us? >> if you asked any american on the street. put a micropho
is defending the obama administration's attack to the benghazi attack. he says the u.s. didn't have time to respond to that attack. here is a bit of his interview over the weekend. >> this is not 911. you can't call and expect within two minutes to have a team in place. it takes time. that's the nature of it. our people are there, they are in position to move. but we have to have good intelligence that gives us a heads up something is going to happen. martha: leon panetta is set to testify thursday. lindsey graham has been pushing for that. a lot of questions about this. in terms of that timing just to adress whole issue, this isn't a 911 call. i remember john mccain say egg we lost two of those people in a 7 or 8-hour change. that would make him a tough statement for him to defend on. >> you heard other people familiar with the assets in the region suggest that we could have had a flyover to try to disperse this angry crowd. what i found interesting about what secretary panetta said. he seems to be blaming the intelligence community saying we need better intelligence. certainly there ar
of health and human services and the obama administration as to what does or does not comply with the dictates of the affordable care act. the only state in a quandary, utah a little far advance, something on the ground and in a few. in shortly governor herbert will be talking not only about the utah exchange but also places in the larger context of what should represent the innovative and effective state-led health policy reform. he will also talk a little bit about utah's approach to medicaid reform and the difficult process trying to get the federal government to buy more flexibility the states. the state utah's overall leadership in promoting market-based patient-centered health care. some of you may recall last month and not widely reported sure, the obama administration actually decided once again to if you can change the product you can change the name. so they decided in the mr. jindal there were no longer be called health exchanges but they would now forth with be called health marketplace. marketplaces -- the official explanation for the was there was because the wo
that the obama administration has gotten the tax increases they have want. taxes have gone up on american families. revenue is up. now americans are asking congress to do the rest of the project, which is deal with the spending side of the equation and none of us want the across- the-board cuts you would get with the sequester. americans would like congress to do its job and try the areas that need to be cut. that is a two-way street. the white house has never set down on the other side of the table to engage. host: if the sequestration goes through, $85 billion across-the- board, what does that mean for the economy? guest: it means we are implementing what was agreed to in a bipartisan agreement in the past cycle. remember, all the parties sat down and said how can we work this through, and what is the amount of money we need to be spending? republicans and democrats started at different points, but came to an agreement that we need to begin cutting spending to the tune of $1.2 trillion over 10 years, so basically it would be and lamenting a bipartisan agreement. host: so, what is the li
. and also during my time, obviously, in the obama administration i greatly benefited from many of the georgetown graduates. i had the honor to have someone as my chief of staff, jeremy bash, who graduated here from georgetown, serve as my chief of staff at the c.i.a. and then followed me to the pentagon as my chief of staff. and also someone who's had a public affairs at the pentagon, george little, who is also someone who both graduated and later taught here at georgetown. talented young individuals who have been at my side every day for the last four years at both the c.i.a. and the pentagon, and i am deeply grateful for their work for me and on behalf of the nation and i am deeply grateful for georgetown for training such extraordinary public servants. and speaking of extraordinary public servants, i think many in this audience know that there's a georgetown professor that the president has nominated to serve as the next secretary of defense, chuck hagel, and i am confident and i've expressed that confidence publicly that the men and women of the department of defense will h
that the obama administration is following is consistent with and really derived from the bush administration approach to the war on terror. and i think it is entirely sensible. whether it is foreign citizens who are involved with al qaeda or american citizens, we are in a war. they have attacked us. we have a congressional authorization to use military force in response. and that's what's at stake here. this is not, you know, robbing the 7-eleven down on the corner. these people are engaged in war against the united states. whether they're american citizens or not, we have entitled as a basic matter of our inherent right of self-defense to respond accordingly. jenna: let's talk a little bit about policy not just now but decades into the future which we have to consider as well. as a matter of policy and how this is being applied right now, do you have any concerns about how it could be used under a different administration at a different time? >> well, i think it could be used less effectively by a future american administration. look, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, uavs, is a huge ste
are going in that direction. republicans have taken the position that the obama administration has gotten the tax increases they have want. taxes ha gone up on american families. revenue is up. now americans are asking congress to do the rest of the project, which is deal with the spending side of the equation and none of us want the across- the-board cuts you would get with the sequester. americans would like congress to do its job and try the areas that need to be cut. that is a two-way street. the white house has never set down on the other side of the table to engage. host: if the sequestration goes through, $85 billion across-the- board, what does that mean for the economy? guest: it means we are implementing what was agreed to in a bipartisan agreement in the past cycle. remember, all the parties sat down and said how can we work this through, and what is the amount of money we need to be spending? republicans and democrats started at different points, but came to an agreement that we need to begin cutting spending to the tune of $1.2 trillion over 10 years, so basically it would be
i think as this administration, the obama administration has done, of expanding it to include wounded soldiers and looking at ways that we can support even more veterans, so in the same way that president clinton had to look at the times when we were in office, we have to examine these new times when the reality is people are working longer and harder, and it's difficult to access the law so we need to ask ourselves what we can do differently. >> 20-year anniversary of fmla, can you believe that 1993 seems like just yesterday? why do you think this law is so important? >> the reason president clinton has people tell him it's appreciated, 100 million families have used it, 14,000 in 2011. this is a law that affect all strata of american society. the problem we have and mika has written about this in national memo is we're far behind other countries in this. far behind when it was passed and far behind the benefits -- >> how is in a? how are we behind? >> other countries have paid leave. they have paid leave for dads as well as moms when a pregnancy is -- a baby is born. >> chec
care geek of the current news center. >> good morning, everybody, president obama is showing his administration can multi-task. he is tolding two separate meetings at the white house. this morning with labor leaders and this afternoon with business leaders. the idea is to try to find some consensus when it comes to immigration reform and this coming while the president continues to push for new gun legislation. the state department could transfer $1.1 billion in surplus funds no longer used in iraq to beef up securities at u.s. embassies abroad. state has asked for $2.4 billion for immediate needs. iranian president is in egypt today becoming the first iranian president to visit the country since the islamic revolution in 1979. the two will attend the organization of it islamic cooperation, a summit beginning tomorrow. we're back after the break. stay with us. ♪ alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden
